Stayed here several days 6/14, and just loved it for the price. Ocean breezes, Sounds of the surf day and night with balcony doors open. Staff was very friendly, grounds are clean inside and out. We will be back in very near future, and want same room we stayed in. John Harrison,Oh.

The Sea Foam is not for everyone. It's dated and old fashioned BUT if you want to open your back door and walk out on the beach, sleep in a comfortable basic room and hear the sound of the surf, this is the place for you. The Management is great, the motel is located near wonderful restaurants and the newly... More

I stumbled across the Sea Foam completely by accident. I was looking for an inexpensive place to spend the weekend and happened to see their “Vacancy” sign when I drove by. I knew when I checked in that this wasn’t a 5 star hotel by typical hotel standards. It was however, a 5 star experience. From the people that checked... More

Where do we even begin?? My boyfriend and I stumbled upon this place online and the minute we read, "sunrise over the Atlantic" we were sold! We loved the location, and how close it was to everything. We had the pleasure of meeting Tracey (the general manager) to Kindra who was so helpful with ALL of our questions we had... More

You can't compare apples to oranges. They're different from the get go. My princess heart is thrilled by a Westin's heavenly bed and soaking tub. But my vintage heart beat HARD for the Sea Foam Motel! This place is old. The person who took my reservation told me that plainly. It is also gorgeous and perfect and chilled my butt... More

Me and my husband just recently stayed a weekend at the Sea Foam. They should call it the Sea Scum. The manager was not at all accommodating to our complaints, was very rude and unprofessional. I don't know about you but I would prefer having windows that lock but apparently painting them shut is the managers way of security Its... More

I would definitely recommend working with these people if you are planning a stay.The staff I worked with was AMAZING and so helpful. I called in the off season and did not get anyone. Left a message and they returned my call immediately. Unfortunately, I was unable to make the stay because of last minutes issues. However, as a local... More

Even though we were just there for one night before our house rental, it was just as nice as it was a couple of years ago when we stayed for 10 days, renting one of their nicely equipped efficiencies. Rooms are clean, staff is nice and friendly. Just go!
